Marcin Pilipczuk - University of Warsaw
The celebrated Erdős-Pósa theorem states that every undirected graph that does not admit a family of $k$ vertex-disjoint cycles contains a feedback vertex set (a set of vertices hitting all cycles...

Thomas Britz - UNSW Sydney
The popular course MATH3411 Information, Codes, and Ciphers was this previous term given a light Digital Uplift. In this talk, I will describe what this actually means, what the processes were, and...

Daniel Altman - University of Oxford
Szemer\'edi's theorem says that subsets of the integers with positive density contain $k$-term arithmetic progressions ($k$APs). We investigate the probability threshold for which $k$APs are...

Tim Trudgian - UNSW Canberra at ADFA
… turn to square-free numbers! These include the primes as well as other numbers that are ‘not too composite’. If the primes are giving us grief, then we can content ourselves with solving questions...

Simos Meintanis - University of Athens
There exist a number of tests for assessing the nonparametric heteroskedastic location-scale assumption. Here we consider a goodness-of-fit test for the more general hypothesis of the validity of...

Mahadevan Ganesh - Colorado School of Mines, USA
A natural medium for  wave propagation comprises a  coupled bounded heterogeneous region  and an  unbounded homogeneous free-space. Frequency-domain wave propagation models in the medium, such as the...
